Description - How Contagion Works: Science, Awareness and Community in Times of Global Crises - The short essay that helped change the Covid-19 debate by Paolo Giordano

'The literature of the time after begins here'

EVENING STANDARD

'A jolt of brevity and simplicity'

THE TIMES

'In one short hour, in the midst of this difficult moment, Giordano reinforced my sense of hope in humanity'

PHILIPPE SANDS, AUTHOR OF EAST WEST STREET AND THE RAT LINE

The Covid-19 pandemic is the most significant health emergency of our time.

Writing from Italy in lockdown, physicist and novelist Paolo Giordano explains how disease spreads in our interconnected world:

why it matters

how it impacts us

how we must react

By expanding his focus to include other forms of contagion - from the environmental crisis to fake news and xenophobia - Giordano shows us not just how we got here but also how we can work together to move forward.
